Anniversary Brunch at La Vie DC

 You know what they say, time flies when you're having fun! John and I recently celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary. It seems like we were married a only a few years ago. The pandemic has thrown all kinds of curve balls to everyone, and I would be lying if I said that everyone working and going to school online didn't cause some stress to our lives (and our horrible internet!) But every challenge presents an opportunity to grow and learn, and we've really learned so much about each other over the past year and a half or so. I'm more in love than ever, and appreciate every day. 

We're enjoying being mostly empty nesters, and have lots of travel plans and little weekend getaways planned now that things are opening. Almost every weekend in the fall is booked for some kind of adventure, and I'm really looking forward to it. 

We wanted to try something new for our anniversary brunch, so I asked my friend Patty for a recommendation, because she always knows the best places to go. Neither John nor I had ever been to the Wharf, so we booked brunch at La Vie DC. Impressive does not even begin to explain the incredible view, service, and food.  

As soon as you enter the reception area, you know that La Vie offers a special dining experience. After checking in, an elevator whisked us to floor 4.6, an interesting location with an enviable vista.

The hostess led us to a delightful table with an incredible view of the wharf (and my cute husband).

A sweet anniversary card and branded hand sanitizer awaited us at the table. I brought my appetite, because I had heard amazing things about the brunch. Luckily I wore a comfortable pink tiered dress, paired with some gold floral sandals, to brunch. Brunch is served in small plates, starting with small bites, moving on to savory selections, and finishing off with the sweets. The mimosas are bottomless and portions are unlimited, leaving you free to ask for an extra serving of your favorite dishes. 

Here are some of my favorites. 

If you're looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, or just want to experience an unbelievable brunch, reserve a spot at La Vie DC. I promise that you'll love it. 

Pro Tips: 
- Make reservations in advance
- Make parking reservations online because parking is at a premium
- Request a table beside a window
- Check out the bathrooms and the fun art (seriously!)
